Hi I have a Debian 4 machine with Ruby 1.8.6 (installed from source) and some gems including Rails 2.1 and Phusion Passenger 2.0.3 (mod_rails, which needs fastthread and rack gems). I want to update to the latest patch of that version (1.8.6-p287), but I have my concerns. Can I do it safely? Is there any warning, any catch? Will I have to reinstall RubyGems and every single gem? What's your advice before patching? Will all the dependent apps be screwed up? I'm asking this because, unfortunately, there's no "make uninstall" command after installing Ruby from source... Really! I tried, but failed miserably. The only choice I see is to erase the folder where it's located, I doubt installing the patch overwrites all the files. Any suggestion is welcomed. Later...

That sounds like the way to go for you.
